I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

A Real Man

My friend, Abi, sent this to me under the title of 'A Real Man'. I agree 100%. Air Force Chief Master Sgt. John Gebhardt, I am definitely a fan of yours.

Now that is the sweetest thing I have ever seen.

I love manly men that have soft underbellies.


I want my very own John Gebhardt.

I just read that article elsewhere this morning, and my heart broke for that little girl who lost her entire family and is seriously wounded...but how sweet that this man took the time to comfort her.

What a guy.

Win their hearts and minds, and then kill them when they get older. It has worked many times in wars past. It will work again.

anon ~ I don't see this man doing anything to win hearts and minds, but merely trying to comfort a child.

I have seen this article before, but even so it still chokes me up. He is truly a "Real Man" and one that I am thankful for as he sacrifices his life for our country.

I'm sure this man has children at home that he is separated from, and in reality he's receiving just as much comfort as the child.

I found a fellow blogger from your website-blogs, blood, b.s. and brains. I enjoyed visiting his site but now can't find it. Do you know what happened to him? Hope he's okay.
